LG, Samsung, Apple or Essential: who did 'all-screen' best?

In years past, when phone makers touted their phones as bezel-less, they usually meant thin side rim, but after it became clear that Apple is working on an “all-screen” phone with OLED display last year, there was a rush to trim the top and bottom bezels, too, as nobody seemed sure how exactly it would look like. Nearly all major brands pierced the 80% screen-to-body ratio this year, but had different approaches to the “all-screen” solution in terms of shapes and forms, and we wanted to know which one is your favorite so far.

Apple tipped to use LG as a foldable iPhone supplier, since Samsung may leak the design

Samsung may finally be producing its unicorn of a foldable phone in a limited batch, but Apple is taking notice, it seems, as Korean media reports today it has tasked LG with the production of flexible OLED panel and circuit board for an eventual bendy iPhone prototype of its own, some Apple patents for which you can see above. Currently, Apple’s OLED screen needs for the iPhone X and, likely, for the 2018 crop, will be supplied by Samsung, but the team from Cupertino may break that monopoly a year or two from now by investing in LG and other smaller OLED makers.

Apple iPhone 8 vs LG G6

Glass meets glass in our next comparison where it is the LG G6’s turn to shine. While its 2016-grade chipset hardly compares against the blazing Bionic processor of the iPhone 8, the G6 one ups Apple’s handset with a dual camera, a taller, high-res display with a 2:1 aspect ratio, and a very compact for the 5.7” screen size body, all while costing less than Apple’s handset. Yet would this be enough for the LG G6 to beat the iPhone in this one-on-one clash? Read on to find out…

Deal: T-Mobile LG G5 on sale for less than $200, works on all GSM networks

The G5 should have been one of the most innovative flagships launched by LG, but the phone quickly turned into a big disappointment. The “modular” aspect of the LG G5 wasn’t as appealing as the South Korean company thought it would, and so the flagship didn’t sell that well.

Still, when a flagship drops to less than $200 after just one year, it becomes as interesting as the new high-end smartphones. LG G5 is now on sale for just $199 on eBay, less than 55% off the MRSP.

Even Amazon has the unlocked version of the LG G5 on sale for $249.99, so the eBay deal …
